sounds like a broken record

I know, I know, I sound like a broken record. I PROMISE, I will have a few new posts soon. So much has been going on since October of last year I don't even know where to begin. First of all I GOT A JOB!! YAY! Love the job (Marketing Department - for a pretty awesome company) but it keeps me suuuuper busy & more importantly, severely limits my baking and creating time. Although I have managed to find the time to make a few cakes here & there. Pictures will be posted soon if it means I have to get up a bit early, it will get done. PROMISE!! Check back soon, you won't be disappointed.

pink ribbon cake

This cake comes with a little bit of a back story. Last week one of my girlfriends rode with me to deliver a birthday cake to a friend in Belton (just outside of Killeen, TX) & we got to talking about recent events in our hometown. She filled me in on a very special lady that works with her at her school that was diagnosed with breast cancer about 2 weeks after school started this year. She told of how every.single.person. on their campus has rallied around to support this lady, all the special things they have done & are planning to do for her to keep her spirits up as she goes through treatment. When she was telling me all this, besides being totally in awe, it got me to thinking of how I could help. So when she said they wanted to do a pink cake & pink lemonade day I immediately volunteered to make the cake. I know God has a plan for everyone & everything & I totally & completely believe that He put my friend in my truck that day to tell me that story. The kindness & support that these folks have displayed has been completely inspiring. The writing is kinda hard to see in the pictures but it says: Team Stephanie Fight Like A Girl. They had this printed on t-shirts that every person on campus has bought & wears every Thursday & I believe will be wearing in the upcoming Susan G. Koman Race For The Cure race in Austin, TX. I encourage everyone to do what you can to support the fight against breast cancer, every woman diagnosed is someone's mother, sister, daughter, friend.

hanna montana cake

I absolutely loved this cake!! It was sooo much fun making a birthday cake for a little girl. Her only request was that she wanted a Hanna Montana cake to go with her Hanna Montana birthday party & I was happy to oblige! I baked the cake & bought the decorations from Wal-Mart (bakery & health & beauty departments). I can only take partial credit for the design for this cake, the edible image was from but I did combine it with the guitar lip gloss (totally my idea).

spongebob cake

So last weekend I made a Spongebob cake for my youngest son's birthday party. Again the design of this cake came from, although I did buy the little decorations from them & did the work myself. I think it turned out to be the cutest thing ever (& my little one was ga-ga over it!)!! Did I mention he likes Spongebob?? ALOT!! Anyways, check it out & see what you think.

mickey mouse cake

So before I post a new pic, I should tell you that this is NOT an original design by me, I totally copied THIS CAKE from CAKES.COM. I did this as a favor for some friends of ours for their daughter's b-day & absolutely did not accept any money for this. That being said, take a look at the picture below & tell me what you think. How cute is this cake???
